Happy New Year

So, it’s a new year. I never really understood why it was such a big deal. Ok. So it’s time to break out a new calendar and we have to remember to write a different number on checks, but what is the big deal?

The thing I never got was the whole resolution thing. We make these promises to ourselves that we know we’ll break by the end of the month like it’s something special. If you’re serious about it, just do it.

They’re also usually the same three or four resolutions: Lose weight, get a new job, find a boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. I’ve never heard any interesting ones. I’d like to hear someone resolve that they’ll finally move all the dead bodies in their back yard or they’ll finally convert their Italian lira to Euro. Perhaps if I heard someone resolve to do something unusual, I might take more interest in doing it myself.
